Dear LeBron and Dwyane:

Since the two of you have been sneaking in private conversations of you next possible free agent destinations, have you considered an NBA city north of the Windy City?

LeBron, take a cue from Dwyane.  He knows this city very well.

In fact, he comes back occasionally during the regular season.

Don't worry about the salary of one broken-down player on the team.  His motor is shot.

And the owner is fuming over having to pay over $18 million for one more season of a worn-out part.

I know that commissioner David Stern isn't going to punish either of you for your chats before the official free agent signing period on July 1.

If both of you can take a pay cut for a couple of years, we would love to have you.

You guys will be the reasons that opponents will Fear the Deer.

Worried about what to do for the summer?  Problem solved.

Every weekend during the summer, there are ethnic or church festivals taking place somewhere.

But if you get bored sometimes, you can go to Chicago.

LeBron, I think Dwyane needs your shoulder to cry on.

He said it will be the most challenging summer of his life.

That off-the-court stuff Dwyane faces is more than a human being is subjected to.

You know, the other partners in the failed restaurant business are trying to sue him to recoup some of their cash.

Another issue will be the nasty divorce hearing between Dwyane and his high school sweetheart.

And don't forget, the drama between Siovaughn Wade and actress Gabrielle Union can turn into a catfight.

I don't blame Siovaughn for getting mad at Gabrielle because she stole her man.

She stole Vivica Fox's man in the movie, "Two Can Play That Game."

So I say that Union is 2-for-2 in the stolen base department.  At that rate, she will never be caught stealing.

Forget all the talk of whether you guys are staying with your team or jumping ship. 

What's important anyways?  Taking a boatload of money or coming here and bringing us another NBA championship?

We already have a center and a power forward. 

With LeBron at the 3 and you at the 2, Dwyane, add Young Buck in the mix with the big Australian, and we will have the NBA's first Big Four.

Think about it, LeBron and Dwyane. 

As Dwyane will tell you, since he's the biggest name in Marquette basketball history, we have the best college basketball fans in the country.

But, of course, LeBron, you wouldn't know about the college experience, since you skipped the opportunity of higher learning.
